Højlund’s Injury Impact leaves Manchester United with a number of challenges

Manchester United have been dealt a major blow with the absence of Danish striker Rasmus Højlund due to an injury sustained in training that will keep him out of action for up to three weeks.

Højlund’s injury is another blow to manager Eric ten Hag, who is also missing the services of Luke Shaw, Lisandro Martinez, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Tyrelll Malacia and Mason Mount, which will complicate the team’s mission to continue climbing the English League standings, which is sixth in the table, five points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa.

The Dutch striker is likely to miss both the Fulham game on Saturday and the derby against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on 3 March.

Højlund has been one of the Red Devils’ mainstays, scoring in his last six games and leading the team to victory against Luton Town with two goals.

In his press conference, Erik ten Hag spoke about the Dane’s absence: “It is a small injury, two or three weeks. It is a risk in high-intensity training. It is not a big injury but he has to wait for two or three weeks.”

Højlund’s injury will undoubtedly have an impact on Manchester United, but the team has good players capable of leading the attack in the upcoming matches.
